Provider Type: Speech-Language Pathologist
Location: Fort Worth

I’m Tasha Rudel-Barton, M.S., CCC-SLP and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2021, as a speech-language pathologist. I earned my undergraduate degree from Baylor University and my master’s degree in Communication Science and Disorders from Texas Woman’s University. I also have a master’s in Gerontology from the University of North Texas. Prior to Monkey Mouths, I worked in schools.

"Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.” This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson is something I apply in my therapy approach. Therapy should be fun – lots of play and laughter to accomplish our goals. Honesty, with patients and families, is an unwavering standard of care. And kindness – well, who doesn’t appreciate that!!

In my spare time I enjoy crafting, playing with my puppies (two American hairless terriers named Trudy and Franklin), cooking, and being with my family at our ranch.
